As a bureau of the Department of the Treasury and as one of the world's most efficient tax administrators, the IRS role is to help the large majority of compliant taxpayers with the tax law, while ensuring that the minority who are unwilling to comply pay their fair share. (Source: www.irs.gov)

Category B grade 11. I had a feeling I wasn't going to receive an A like I did years ago. Some of those accounting questions got to me and its been years since I have done any of that stuff. Well I know some B's have gotten interviews in the past so I guess at this point its a wait and see game. I am not stressed. I have a good paying job right now so I will be ok either way.

Now I just got the email for grade 7. So you will get separate emails for each grade you applied for saying what category you are.

I will admit I am shocked they sent the emails earlier than they said they would. Guess they are trying to get the ball rolling.

you're external right? I don't have an email yet. I check USA JOBS and career connector and they both just say application received.

I’m not personally getting my hopes up. It will be a pleasant surprise to get called for an interview with a category B. But there are also many people who don’t get called back who are a category A. It all depends on where you apply and how many positions they have and how many people applied for that area.

Cat A for both GS11 and GS9. Lol not sure how since I didn't even take the new assessment. I'm not holding my breath for an interview since I am external and my preference was Ogden, which is a main IRS campus so I am sure there are a million internals looking to move up that take priority over me.

To all the Cat B's, don't get discouraged. I was a B two years ago and got an interview and was also selected (I declined). Just be aware that an interview may be extremely short notice. They called me around 10:00 in the morning and wanted be to come in at noon that same day. By chance I happened to have work off that day.

Thank you for the encouragement.

I just talked to my friend who works in the Houston office and she said the same thing. For me not to get discouraged. She said last time they did a big hiring they interviewed a lot of category B's. She said they need people after years of not hiring and people are retiring so they are scrambling right now. She also said there will be more announcements for other positions coming out so keep an eye out for other announcements. So I will remain hopeful.

Last hiring round I got an interview as a Category B. I was not willing to relocate. This time, the location I want opened up, but I am well aware I probably wont get called until someone retires. :-/

I received a Cat A rating for a grade 11 today. Surprised the results came a week early. Hopefully the interviews will be January or February.

Hey everyone! Former RA here. Haven’t posted here in awhile. I’ve been in public for the past 6 years. Figured I would follow all of the action on here.

Applied to 4 Michigan locations and 2 in Texas. Only applied for GS 11. Cat A rating back today.

Hi everyone I am anxiously waiting as the rest of you. I am in Denver Colorado. I just got an email saying Catagory A which I am shocked about I thought I messed up pretty badly.

I am a former government employee so I don’t know if that gives me any better chance as a straight external candidate.

I wish everyone good luck though! It’s nice to find this forum.
